Who’s Ready for the American Royal?

October 1st, 2012

The whole Brown family is gearing up for the American Royal this weekend.  As far as we know, it’s the largest BBQ competition in the nation. KC Windustrial Company is sponsoring “The Pipe Dream Smoking Team,”  who is using OUR sauce. They probably have an unfair advantage, but we aren’t telling the judges!

The festivities start on Friday, October 5.  Papa himself will be there starting at about 5 pm: shaking hands, kissing babies, and probably giving all the BBQ a fair sample.  Saturday, October 6, the whole Brown family will be there  all day joining in the festivities.  We would love to see some of you out there.  “The Pipe Dream Smoking Team” will be set up in the NE corner of Kemper Arena, Lot D 008. If you can’t make it out, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for us in the news.
